What It Really Means

I thought this was cute. I can't say much more except my computer's hard drive melted down yesterday and my life has pretty much been a series of damage control / what am I going to do now ever since! It's amazing how much we rely on these things these days! Of course, I'm 73, so that makes sense I would say something like that ha!! Soon I'll be talking about "those young whippersnappers" and saying "those were the days."

Anyway, my brain hurts from talking to a man from India for three hours yesterday. He was very nice, but I couldn't understand a word. The good news is that God is smiling down on me and did everything but send me a personal note telling me to backup my computer last week for the first time in 8 months. Yep, big props to him for that. So, my life is not lost. The other good news, it was under warranty so a big sigh of relief again.

Now.. on to some laughs and the weekend shall we!!

Bike Lingo

By spokesandbeans

“I’m out of shape”
Translation: I ride 400 miles a week and haven’t missed a day since the Ford administration. I replace my 11-tooth cog more often than you wash your shorts. My body fat percentage is lower than your mortgage rate.

“I’m not into competition. I’m just riding to stay in shape”
Translation: I will attack until you collapse in the gutter, babbling and whimpering. I will win the line sprint if I have to force you into oncoming traffic. I will crest this hill first if I have to grab your seat post, and spray energy drink in your eyes.

“I’m on my beater bike”
Translation: I had this baby custom-made in Tuscany using titanium blessed by the Pope. I took it to a wind tunnel and it disappeared. It weighs less than a fart and costs more than a divorce.

“It’s not that hilly”
Translation: This climb lasts longer than a presidential campaign. Be careful on the steep sections or you’ll fall over — backward. You have a 39×23 low gear? Here’s the name of my knee surgeon.

“This is a no-drop ride”
Translation: I’ll need an article of your clothing for the search-and-rescue dogs.

“It’s not that far”
Translation: Bring your passport

Have a spectacular weekend everyone!! Very excited to watch Oceanside tomorrow - good luck to all those racing especially my peeps - Jocelyn, Jeremy and Charisa!!

You are more tech savvy than you give yourself credit for. I have gotten emails before saying "How do I do xxx on my blog? Sorta like how Kim has it. Can you help?" ileitis identities are top secret.

On any my comp has been acting wonky lately, but I haven't backed it up in about 2 years. Thanks fo the reminder! I gotta get on that.

Funny and very true.

Glad to hear you backed up your computer. Frustrating stuff, but not as bad as it could have been
